This year’s Tillage Live event will be held in Warwickshire
- The Agricultural Engineers Association (AEA) have announced that the 2023 Tillage-Live event will be taking place in the Midlands.
Chris and David of WH Corbett have kindly offered to host the event, which is the largest national crop establishment demonstration in the UK.
The event, which is being held on Thursday 14th September at WH Corbett, Cottage Lane, Norton-Juxta-Twycross, Atherstone, Warwickshire, CV9 3QH, will showcase leading machinery manufacturers with demonstrations of crop establishment technology including ploughs, cultivators, sprayers, conventional, strip tillage and direct drills. The event also includes a static exhibition area which provides an opportunity to discuss new ideas with industry-leading experts. This year’s knowledge trail is still in the process of being compiled, it includes a look at soils and cover crops and also hopes to sign up partners to cover tyres and soil protection.
Simon Brown, MD of Amazone Ltd, long term exhibitor and member chair of the Tillage-Live committee said “No one should miss the opportunity to visit Tillage-Live because, as the Government looks to farming to reduce its carbon footprint, the way we manage soils is becoming increasingly in the spotlight and the right choice of machinery can play its part in helping to improve soil health, stimulate soil biology as well as being used to combat disease and weed pressures.
In my view, Tillage-Live offers growers that rare opportunity to see a wide spectrum of crop establishment equipment actually on a tractor and working in the field and so, having been able to get an idea of what that bit of kit might do, a visit to Tillage-Live can then lead to a demonstration at home with a view to changing establishment methods. The event constantly evolves, and the recent introduction of the central demonstration ring gives exhibitors the chance to showcase new machinery and, with a view to keeping growers abreast of those changing trends, the cover crop zones now offer alternative demonstration opportunities. We look forward to seeing everyone in September”.
Lisa Suter, event organiser, explained ‘the AEA are extremely pleased that Tillage-Live will be taking place in the Midlands in 2023, being so centrally located it offers great access for potential customers and visitors to attend the show this year, we are open to the public 8am – 3pm on Thursday 14th September 2023.
